A more equitable society and a social sector that has access to the connections and resources it needs to thrive. Their Purpose
To build the capacity of grassroots non-profit organisations, by helping to democratise giving and facilitating greater community engagement.
The Funding Network (TFN) is the largest live collective giving model in Australia. We enable grassroots non-profits and social enterprises to access the capital, skills, connections and resources they need to thrive. We do this two ways: via TFN Live, our public in-person crowdfunding events; and TFN Learn, our capacity building services and workshops where we share our methodology with like-minded organisations.
Since 2013, TFN has brought together 10,000 people to collectively raise $11 million for 280 grassroots non-profits and social enterprises, guiding them on how to craft a compelling pitch to inspire new audiences. We have also facilitated over 2,200 direct introductions between non-profit leaders and donors who want to help and offer in-kind support, with the total value of in-kind support facilitated valued at $3.3 million. TFN’s model is innovative, collaborative and inclusive.
Join us by coming along to one of our live crowdfunding events, a full list of upcoming events is available here. Alternatively, if you'd like to have a chat about how we can help your organisation use live crowdfunding to engage your donors/supporter base, email us: email@example.com
